CEIMB - Fish Tacos with Chipotle Cream

This week's recipe of fish tacos with chipotle cream was chosen by Nick, Sarah and Geoff from Imafoodblog. I have always been somewhat skeptical of fish tacos. I am not sure why, but I am. I'm somewhat picky about maybe that leads to not so much wanting to order a fish taco. People always say they are good, but eh, if they are...I have always decided that I would just have to miss out. The cats are much more a fan of fish than I am. They were super excited about another seafood pick!
Well in the spirit of being a good food blogger, I decided to give the fish tacos a go. And I must say, maybe fish tacos aren't so bad. In fact, they are really good. Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce are SPICY!!!! I mean wow...who knew??? I slapped a tablespoon or so of sauce on the taco (in an attempt to cover up the fishiness) and I wanted to cry my mouth was so on fire!!! Note to self...a small amount of sauce will do.

I used tillapia and added some avocado and tomatoes to the mix of veggies decorations for the tacos. While they are somewhat different, I am glad I decided to make them. I can't wait to see what everyone else has to say about the tacos!
Now I just have to figure out what to do with 28 more corn tortillas!! Enchiladas??? Any other suggestions?

Thanks to Imafoodblog for picking fish tacos this week. Maybe I will actually go out on a limb and order them at a restaurant sometime soon!


  1. That's a lot of corn tortillas! You might have to "google" it for recipes. Good job on the tacos!

  2. Yay, I am glad you tried and liked these. Thanks for being a trooper and cooking with me this week! You could make some baked corn chips with your leftover tortilla.

  3. I am glad you liked these, Jen! Did you think the tilapia was fishy? I find it kind of flavorless (but in a good way!) I thought these were great, and super easy for a weeknight. I HIGHLY recommend Ellie's steak tacos with cucumber avocado salsa for using up some of those corn tortillas. Oh, and the tortillas freeze well, too!

    Your tacos look yummy!

  4. I have to figure out what to do with all those tortillas and chipotles!! Glad you tried the recipe! I love all of your additions...mmm.

  5. I have a ton of that chipotle stuff left over and I guess it will get thrown out because I do not know what to fix with it. I'm glad you tried these tacos. They were fun and easy, right? And tasty!! Love your photo.
